Mozi’s – What Mozi’s
After a rather quite week previous the mood was soon lifted on Saturday morning when the legend that is Bullet had a take from the tree line… some say he’s faster out the blocks than Usain Bolt! An absolute stunning fish weighing 26.10lb was hoisted for the camera.
Korda’s very own Damian Clarke pulled out a good draw and decided on Co’s Point, a very consistent week was had landing a total of 12 fish including 8 30’s 1 40 and the “bearded lady” at 53.08lb. Damian was fishing at 28RL towards the right hand side of the bald spot and rented one of the boats to bait up with Hybrid boilies and a light scattering of Tigers. the tactic of baiting up first thing in the morning and early afternoon before bite times kept the bait in the area when the fish came in.
Next up a real legend in the shape of Tim Paisley who was fishing in the stink, Tim fished at around 90 yards to a clear opening in the weed, it was a tough week for him and after listening to bailiffs knowledge Tim tried one of the incredible Banoffee Wafters and to immediate effect caught the awesome “Discus” at 54lb.
Tom Dove fished in Alcatraz and fished to a spot lightly covered in weed at 27 ¼ Rl, Tom Baited with 22kg of hybrid and a light scattering of tigers throughout the week using a boat, he landed a total of 8 fish including 4 30’s 2 40’s and a new PB in the shape of the incredible “target” at 61.13lb. Tom also learnt that flip-flops and socks AREN’T cool…
Gareth fishing in Oblivion as most do took an instant disliking to Barty and by day 4 had him pinned down on the bench crying for his life, Barty claims that he was in control and actually had Gareth… Video evidence proofs different!
Gareth fished his rods very accurately to a small spot and baited with hybrid and tigers, it took the fish a while to slip up but when they did they couldn’t come much better for the second time this week after not being out for over a year “target” this time was in Gareth’s net weighing in at 61.14lb what a fish and a massive well done. The next night another fish was in the net this time a very charismatic creature known as “arfur the common” with 1 eye and “arfur” tail only a mother could love it.
Chris fished in the Alamo and was fishing 120 yards aiming in between Alcatraz and baxters, again with long range fishing he used the boat to his advantage with baiting up, it took the fish a while to move in but on Thursday he received his first bite, a lovely almost leather known as the “spotty leather” weighing in at 46lb left Chris swinging from the trees… Friday night Chris landed his second fish a scale perfect 26lb common.
